Laurel (Bay Leaf) is sacred to Apollo and is associated with the Sun. Bay leaves may be added to any spell or potion designed to enhance psychic ability. Bay leaf is exceptionally useful as a fumigant during banishing and exorcism rites, especially those involving poltergeists. Mixed with sandalwood, it is useful for breaking curses.
It is said that if you write a wish on a dried bay leaf and then burn it and your wish will come true.
